Overlawyered turns 18 years old

Overlawyered published its first post on July 1, 1999. That means we’ve achieved 18 years of continuous publication. You can read the first half-month of posts here. Happy birthday to us!

To get more Overlawyered in your social media diet, like us on Facebook here (and don’t forget to like the Cato Institute and the page for our editor Walter Olson) and follow us on Twitter (ditto and ditto).

  • I’d like to say that I have read every word that Walter has written in this blog since its inception, plus many of the linked articles. Overlawyered and National Review Online
    are truly the best on the Web.

      I’d like to say that too, but it wouldn’t be true. But I have read Walter’s blog for many years, and I find it extremely informative. It quickly became a “must read” with morning coffee.

      I hope for many happy returns of the anniversary.

  • Happy anniversary, Walter! Although I very seldom post, Overlawyered is one of the very few sites I read just about every day.
    Great work!

  • A Very Happy Anniversary to Overlawyered, though it seems like we are the ones getting the gifts. Can’t say I’ve been here since the beginning, but its been at least 15 years, maybe a little more. Forget when I started stealing minutes on the work computer assisting attorneys (during my lunch break, not paid time) to read this Blog. At the time, it was a guilty pleasure.

    Many, many more!

  • A great and early expositor of the power of the blog.

  • I still remember the salmon-and-gray color scheme. Overlawyered is always worth checking. It vacuums up anything relevant to power abuse by lawyers, which remains a desperately un-critiqued American hydra. Against mostly-lawyer legislators, a credulous media, a complacent business world, a self-protecting legal system (bench and bar), and a suspicious but clueless public, one man stands (nearly) alone. Thanks for all the hard work.
